Aged just 14, John Moses Brunswick left Switzerland to begin a new life in America, and after seeing an exquisite billiards table from the renowned London manufacturer, John Thurston, he decided to get into the billiards business, saying “if it’s made out of wood, we can make it better.” He called for his brothers to join him in America to help build his company, expanding across the United States and internationally to create an American corporate icon.
The name Brunswick became known the world over for quality and craftsmanship and has been a leading influence in recreational products for 170 years.This is a truly global brand that has endured the tests of time and in many ways the story of Brunswick echoes the story of America its growth, its innovative spirit, and the dreams it represents.
Produced between 1946 and 1964, the Brunswick Anniversary is arguably one the most beautiful tables they ever produced, and was without doubt the best pool table money could buy at the time. The company was drawing on over a century of manufacturing experience when they produced the anniversary but what really marks it out is the stunning Art Deco styling.
The handsome lines of the Anniversary table invite players to pick up a cue. The use of aluminium in a modern design attractively combines with dark, rich walnut in a table that’s moderately priced, built for accurate play and easy maintenance.
